Calvin joined J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. in April, 2019 and brings with him over 40 years of commercial and residential real estate experience. He started his real estate career in 1978 by opening one of Wichita’s charter Century 21 franchises with his father and brother. In the beginning, Calvin’s business was a combination of residential sales, management, renovation and investment brokerage. In 1985, he joined one of Wichita’s premier commercial brokerages and later became the managing broker for the commercial division of a large local real estate firm. In the fall of 2007 Calvin joined Utter Commercial Real Estate, Inc. and enjoyed being an agent with them until the entire team joined the Weigand firm.
Calvin’s interest in real estate included a fascination with construction, so he obtained a general contractor’s license and built several homes, did a number of commercial remodels and built a strip shopping center.
As a life-long resident of Whitewater, Kansas, Calvin attended the Remington USD 206 schools for all 12 years of his primary education. He then earned an Associate’s Degree in electronics from DeVry in Phoenix, Arizona.
